Your words are taken
While mine forsaken
Your lilting voice
Removes all choice

Your gracious heart
Tears mine apart
Your spirit freed
I crack and bleed

For you the smile
The warmth and style
For me but earth
A barren birth

And as for love
You’ll have enough
While watching I
Just wilt and die

Not just nor fair
No wealth to spare
I always knew
It fell to you

Your soul so charmed
The world disarmed
Where is my space
What is my grace?

You are the sun
They’ll wish upon
ButΒ pray to me
Through jealousy

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Oooooh I love this feeling of utter torment, the sense of inequality between the writer and subject brilliantly executed Helen!

    Good rhythm, really helps it move along – shame the subject is so poignant!

  3. lala1966 says:

    You capture those feelings so well xx

  4. philipparees says:

    They are certainly feelings, but below them lurks an ugly truth of unequal rewards for equal merits. Great economy Helen!

  5. booguloo says:

    The first verse said so much and set the mood for the rest.. Beautiful.

    This is my favorite so far. πŸ™‚
